Litigation Solicitors

We know that no matter how well you lend, invest or borrow, circumstances can change which means that paying back or collecting loaned money is no longer as straightforward as it seemed at the time of agreement. At Manak Solicitors, we understand the strain that debt and bankruptcy can have on the cashflow and security of individuals and businesses. As such, we want to help you mediate any disputes as quickly and easily as possible.

Why Choose Manak for Your Debts & Disputes?

We use the latest technology to assist our qualified, experienced solicitors in moving your file along as fast as we can.

Accuracy

We pride ourselves on absolute attention to detail. We appreciate the significance of your personal situation and work to ensure everything is executed to the highest standard.

Reviews

We encourage you to check our fantastic, transparent Google & Trustpilot reviews. We do not curate selected testimonials like some companies do.

Approachable

We guarantee every single file we work on is overseen by a qualified Solicitor. This is not something all of our competitors will offer you.

We. Are. Experts.

If you are owed money, it can be a dangerous interruption to your cash flow, impacting your business or personal finances. That’s why our team of debt recovery Solicitors are here to assist you in a timely and efficient manner. By enlisting the assistance of Manak Solicitors as soon as you think you may need to take action in the debt recovery process, you greatly strengthen your legal position. 

The debt recovery process can look different with every situation, but generally it follows a Letter Before Action (LBA), issuing court claims, obtaining a County Court Judgement (CCJ) and enforcing that judgement.

If you are owed money, we’re here to make sure you receive it as quickly and easily as possible.

We have a best-in-class team of debt recovery Solicitors with years of experience in ensuring that our clients receive what they are owed. Regardless of the sums involved, we will pursue your debtors from Letter Before Action stage all the way to the use of bailiffs and High Court sheriffs where appropriate.

  • Preparing and filing a formal claim in a County Court: £750.00
  • Requesting judgement where the defendant fails to acknowledge service and/or file defence: £250.00
  • Instructing bailiffs after have obtained judgement as above: £350.00

  • £27.50 per letter written, email sent or telephone call made
  • £25.00 per letter or email received

Nosheen is one of the best solicitors I have had the pleasure of meeting.She is very professional. Nosheen always returns your calls and responds to emails promptly. She is very helpful and easy to talk to and always happy to explain anything I didn't understand. Since meeting Nosheen I have used other solicitors within Manaks relating to other services I required and would not use anyone else but Manaks.

Aneeta has been excellent at handling a matter for me. She has been very precise, professional and reassuring. This is a situation I have been dreading for quite some time but have been made feel at ease by the way Aneeta has handled it. I couldn't recommend her and the whole business enough.

I was probably one of Nosheen Bukhari first clients and from the beginning I was totally impressed with her wonderful attitude, knowledge and care towards her clients. Nosheen was a delight to be associated with and the way she handled my case cannot be criticised

Having to go through such a difficult phase in my life, this process was simplied and made easy by Aneeta. I don't think I could have found a better person to defend me than her. I don't want anyone to go through what i have been through however if anyone finds themselves in the same position, I'd recommend Aneeta with 100% confidence.

I contacted Manak’s solicitors when my close friend fell ill and needed to make a will. Nosheen handled the whole process from beginning to end including dealing with the inheritance tax and she did so with efficiency, compassion and kindness. I’m very grateful to have dealt with a superb solicitor and would highly recommend her to anybody.

I have used manak solicitors for conveyancing on both selling and purchasing properties! ! I have found that they have a friendly and helpful attitude whilst remaining very professional in their attention to detail and accuracy when supplying information and feedback! Keeping one aware at all times !which helps to ease the frustration !when buying or selling properties . knowing what is going on and keeping your client informed is key to good conveyancing and this is what Jasdeep Singh Jandu, and his assistant charley manage to achieve. I was told by the Estate agent Mr Griffiths that they were the best! That is why I chose manak to do my conveyancing in the first place, and I am very happy I did.Ken mills! !
